Hard to believe its become popular to hate slavery, thats always been a part of life! You guys would have cried when the Egyptians whipped thousands to death to build pyramids...

(In other words its possible to appreciate the past but we have to accept that things change, sometimes its for the better. I appreciate Maurice Richard's courage but wouldn't it have been better if he didn't have to fight and play while being concussed? It makes for great stories but these guys risked their friggin lives and health)
